    Would y'all deadhead 300 miles for a 7500 load? Not OD.

    $7500 for 300 miles is a decent paying load.... I'd get higher paying ones but thats just me.

    The load is actually 1900 miles. But 300 to get it. I'm just being lazy.

    $3.40 a mile with your bounce, depending on where it was going I’d take it. Maybe I’m a peasant. Pays enough you can bounce into a good part of the country or better yet get a great load from where you deliver. I usually try for $5-$6 a mile, with that kind of miles though and if the load was light and easy no tarp, I wouldn’t hesitate.

    Sounds like a good load. Now is not the time to be lazy. You want to be lazy when rates are bad. I see that often though, when rates are good people slack. When they suck they run the wheels off.

    I'm not typically lazy. Just this past two weeks I've been home. Didn't feel like deadheading 300 miles to get my first load.
